Who We Are

Emblematic is one of the world's foremost producers of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality.  Our team of award-winning filmmakers, journalists, designers, and veteran game developers lead the industry in creating fully immersive environments that place the user inside the scene, allowing them to move through, interact, and play with the story.

Emblematic takes you to the center of the action.

From tracking the chaos of the Syrian civil war; capturing the tension of a wheel change during the Singapore Grand Prix; or recreating a New York City street scene in 1910.

The Beginning

Founded in 2015 by Nonny de la Peña, known as the “Godmother of virtual reality” Emblematic pioneered walk-around virtual reality with the first ever VR documentary, Hunger in Los Angeles, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012.

From social impact pieces (The World Economic Forum) to branded content (Standard Chartered Bank) to original news stories (The New York Times), Emblematic’s VR experiences encompass everything from recreations of actual events, fantasy environments and powerful data visualizations.
